Reuters Dec 21 | Updated on January 09, 2018

The real estate developer has hired Citic CLSA, Kotak and Morgan Stanley for the IPO.

Lodha Developers is looking to raise up to $1 billion through an initial public offering that is likely to be launched next year, two people with knowledge of the plan told IFR, a Thomson Reuters publication.

India's main stock indexes have surged almost 30 per cent this year, bolstered by strong foreign inflows, spurring companies to raise a record of more than $11 billion through IPOs so far this year.

The company had planned an IPO of 28 billion rupees ($437 million) in 2010, but it was shelved due to a weak stock market. The real estate developer has hired Citic CLSA, Kotak and Morgan Stanley for the IPO, the people said, adding that more banks were likely to join the syndicate, IFR said.

Lodha is currently developing an estimated 43 million square feet of real estate and has 28 ongoing projects across London, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad and Bangalore, according to its website.

The S&P BSE Realty Index is up 97 per cent since the start of the year.
